Flaunt for July

Aries (March 20-April 19)
Who needs discipline when you have obsession? Your brain is heating up and is about to become so hot and so focused you could cut a figure 8 in a steel boilerplate. But if you take a more gentle approach, you’ll get subtler results. A little persistence is all you really need, and the willingness to live every day a little bit differently, for a different reason, and with a different result.

Taurus (April 19-May 20)
There’s no right or wrong way to dance, unless you’re in the New York City Ballet, which you’re probably not. Therefore, shake your ass to the music. If you feel inhibited, push on the inner walls of the restriction. If they’re made of paper, burst through. The only thing between you and yourself is an idea of what you’re supposed to be, and you’ll be a lot happier without it.

Gemini (May 20-June 21)
It’s taken more than a month to sort out a series of financial questions, but you’re setting your sights too low. Money is not about how much you have now, it’s about how wide you can open the flow, how effectively you use the energy, and moreover, what you value. Do you really want to be invested in ExxonMobil? I didn’t think so. But now that you’ve decided what’s meaningful to you, make it count.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Confused? Not anymore. Feeling like a child? Only in the sense that you believe there’s such a thing as happiness. Feeling like the world is a restrictive place? Only until you figure out that your imagination has the ability to wash away any obstacles you may face. Your confidence can come from ignorance, not just intelligence. There is an especially pleasant form of wisdom in not knowing.

Leo (July 22-August 23)
Certain aspects of your most private life have been exceptionally difficult to define or put into words, though the stronger this feeling gets, the more you may feel you understand. The less cut and dried you demand life to be, the more you sense the truth about this relationship intuitively, and the more you recognize that what may be many years effort has really led you to a sane and healthy place.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
When you feel fear, it can be enormously powerful, almost as strong as you are — but not quite. When you sense the size of the universe within, you may want to turn away and resume normal awareness, because that empty space is so vast and egoless. Take your time doing that now. If you can get someone to hold this space open with you, take the opportunity.

Libra (September 22-October 23)
You’ve finally arrived at the space where it’s free to give yourself over, to commit to your own life entirely. Not needing others is one of the strangest and most beautiful feelings there is, and it often arrives with the sense that you really exist as an independent entity. Then, having given yourself permission to exist, you have a chance to relate to everyone equally, by choice and not from compulsion.

Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
Where there was once a fight to gain authority, you seem to have the basic respect you need and deserve. For whatever strange reason, it seems like people are focusing their attention on important issues that have long deserved attention. This is a far cry from the petty matters that so many people around you have been preoccupied with for so long. It is true, a new era of relevance is beginning.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Opportunity abounds, in direct proportion to your faith in life. You have broken down a certain barrier that for many months seemed to separate you from your intuitive guidance and spiritual foundation. But the breakthrough revealed that you were only growing closer to that guidance and strengthening that foundation.

Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
With all the give and take, push and pull, up and down of the past couple of months, you must be longing for a time where all the accounts are settled and life is on level ground. This is attainable, but it’s far less a state of the world and much more a state of mind. You are close to it now, and all you need to do is slip into the freedom that there are some things of which you cannot be certain.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
There really is no explaining relationships, and no matter how much we may try to understand, analyze and assess, at the end of the day, acceptance is what prevails if there is to be any peace of mind. You seem to have tried every method but this one, but now common sense is getting its way. There arrives a moment of freedom from the constraints of your own mind that will grow if you allow it to.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)
There are those times you look back on the past and realize you were at a turning point. The territory you’re covering is just such a place, one you might be particularly disinclined to notice — without astrology to tell you that you are growing in some unusual ways that you have profound power to influence with your imagination. Focus on what you want, because this is the time to create it.
